Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Today in GD History...... Dan Healy weighs in

I agree with your caution . Sometimes it is good to have a little cold water thrown, on our view of the Dead ( I think it makes what they achieved more remarkable, considering their "limits"); but "fair to middling" may be a little too harsh . Garcia liked film, but in the pre-digital era , editing was rough ( it was a surprise to him how much so , when making the GD Movie ); and even more of a problem with him being a director, is he didn't want responsibility, to be the boss . Many of the greatest directors were/are pretty firm to the point of being dictators .
On the original subject of this , the 91 show in question, there was some good stuff in this year ( and even after that ) . I don't listen to Sirius , but they should cover the latter stuff too .
